    One of the best views in Santa Monica, though most of the tables by the window are for larger groups only. If you're a group of two, you might be seated further inside, away from the windows.

    The Black Truffle Grilled Cheese with Crispy Onion Rings are a perfect comfort food. Pair it with a glass of wine or beer. The portion size is perfect, which makes it not over the top indulgent.

    Breakfast of champions with the best view in town. Doesn't matter what you choose; it's all at the level you would expect upon entering (you did take the glass elevator, right?).

    Great view. Love the open space to relax. Empty during the day, enjoy a drink and the hotel wifi as you see the beautiful people go by.

    The view is very nice. Mimosa rating: good alcohol to juice ratio, good service, price point is like whatever since they use cheap sparkling wine. Try the prosecco version.

    Hostess was a bit rude, but the view was amazing!! Food was good too, but not too fantastic. Do try their mussel and sea scallop.

    The drinks and food are exceptional but don't get it twisted, everyone is here for the view.

    Start with the crab cakes. Then have the NY Strip medium, with a double baked potatoe & a glass of Cabernet. Wow. If you have room for dessert, the creme brulee is the perfect ending. BOOM.

    Blackberry remy cocktail, the mussels, the shrimp, the scallops- and the filet.. With a glass of red. All about presentation.. And tastes are amazing! (As well as the views)

    Try the Crab Cakes - Crab cakes small with a great crunch. The celery added a nice acidity. And the endives were wonderful.

    Had dinner and breakfast here. The dinner was okay. The breakfast was great, but my opinion is largely influenced by how perfect the bacon was.

    The Steamed Mussels with the Pommes Frites, washed down with Pinot Grigio. Try not to look like a barbarian as you slurp down the herbed broth.
